On being a companion

I think the most telling feature is that my life can be quite adequately described now, through the eyes of those I accompany.

My last entry was Sunday. But my days have been described by others already.

Yesterday was my first bit of time on my own in a while, and it can be summed up: I sorted mail, ran errands, bowled, visited Barbar, visited Ro and Knight and then went home.

TMI

We use the phrase when we're about to Share Too Much Information. It's a warning to the squeamish, or the non-interested.

But when is information too much?

I was talking to Sydb about the national security warnings, and the possibility (probability?) that we'll start treating them like weather forecasts. Ten percent chance of terror, scattered violence. Etc.

Which leads me to create my first poll.
